The one with the weight loss

Posted by

As some of you may have heard, I recently moved this blog from my old home on blogger. Due to that, I have been looking around to see what lists/websites I am on, so that the link they have can be updated. FYI, if you have a blog roll, why the hell aren’t I on it? *Grrr*

ANYWAY, I digress. One of the websites I was kindly featured on however described my blog as self-deprecating. I can’t argue, my opinion of myself isn’t exactly high, but it got me thinking. I rarely blog about anything good that I’ve done. So here it is. A positive blog post about me. Ready? Still awake? (See, can’t help myself).

I’m fat. Really fat. But thanks to a lot of hard work, will power and the wife cooking most of my meals, I’m not as fat as I used to be.
Back in January when The Mrs started slimming world I weighed over 22st. That’s fat.

But I only have myself to blame, well me and probably a few breweries and Ginsters, definitely Ginsters….Mmmmm Pasties.

BUT…I’m doing something about it. Since January, I have managed to lose 3 and a half stone. That might not seem a lot to some and I don’t really feel or look that much different (In my opinion), but 3+ stone is a lot of weight to not have to shift around all day. If you want to know what it’s like to carry 3.5stone around all day, grab your closest 3-year-old, sellotape him or her to your midriff and walk around for a day. Or strap 94 big macs to your back…plus if you did that, you’d probably become the pied piper to fat people. Just imagine turning round and seeing a train of fatties stalking you…creepy.


I need new shirts for work, I need new trousers for work, all of which I can’t afford, but because of my weight loss, they are far too baggy for me. I’ve had to buy a new belt, which I have already begun working through the notches of. Damn, this losing weight thing is expensive!!

So There you have it, I’m very proud of my little achievement. I still have a long way to go but you can’t complete any journey without taking a few steps.

Just incase you think its all abot ME ME ME. I am also very proud of The Mrs. She as always is my inspiration and she has lost 3 Stone aswell…so between us, thats 7 and a half stone! Thats too many Big Macs to count!

OK back to the boring, self hating stuff!

As always thanks for reading.


  1. Well done mate. 3.5st is a fantastic achievement, and you should be proud to have shifted… does some quick calculations… about 16% of your original body weight!

    I shifted 25% of mine last year, and I can honestly say I’ve never felt better. Keep up the good work 🙂
